Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Why Us?

Shafer Mortuary Services is locally owned and operated and our crematory is located on-site.  We don’t make deals with the “name brands” and pass on the price to the families.  We offer “wholesale” pricing to the public; however, we do not sacrifice great care and service to the community we serve.  With our modest facilities located in Amarillo’s east side, we are able to keep our prices low.  We also have the ability to care for your beloved pets through our sister company, Furrever Pet Crematory.  We truly believe every life is worth a celebration!

Why Us?

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Learn the legacy.

Shafer Mortuary Services was established years ago, and serving families has always been our focus. We take pride in being able to guide people through some of their most difficult days. We take pride in maintaining a setting that allows people to find solace. Celebrating life is our mission. That’s never changed. And with pride, it never will.
